The presence of shallow waters and numerous locals of the waterfront make Marina Chiaiolella one of the most famous and popular destinations of Procida. Here, in addition to the well-equipped seaside, you will find some of the most visited hotels and restaurants of the island. Despite the busy summer tourism, which led to certain unavoidable changes, the Chiaiolella has always maintained its characteristics of a fishing village. Strolling along the pier and passing Via Giovanni da Procida it is possible to admire the characteristics of spontaneous architecture houses. The houses are centuries-old, while the hotels perfectly frame the landscape even going back to more recent times. The highlight of the entire village is the Shrine of St. Joseph, built in 1836 and restored over the years. In addition to the bell tower with the big clock that looks out from each side of the building, particular attention should be given to the beautiful paintings located inside the church. The little port, consisting of an old extinct volcanic crater, is surrounded, to the west, by Solchiaro, once a favorite Bourbon area for hunting, and to the east by the promontory of Santa Margherita, in the XVIII century a Benedictine monastery. Finally, do not miss the fantastic sunset over the islands of Ischia and Vivara, visible from all the beaches of the village.
